Description of this Master Class for Students
This master class for students will take place in person. An alternative, digital participation in Zoom is also possible.
This lecture examines African American history through music. From work songs and spirituals of the times of slavery to jazz, blues, and bebop of the Harlem Renaissance; from the anthems of the Civil Rights Movement to hip hop and today’s diverse soundtrack of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, we will take a closer look at how music reflects and shapes the social context in which it is created and performed. The lecture will be supplemented with examples from music videos, recordings and other primary source materials.
This lecture is free of charge. Reservations can be made via e-mail by school teachers and individual students grades 11 through 13. Please include the number of students and your school's name with your registration.
